Kibo Elements Arrive at NASA's Kennedy Space Center for Processing


Published 10/6/2008


Two elements of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's Kibo laboratory arrived at NASA's Kennedy Space Center, Fla., on Sept. 24, 2008, to begin processing for flight. The exposed facility and the experiment logistics module-exposed section traveled from Japan to Kennedy via a Russian Antonov-124 aircraft. The exposed facility is a unique platform that will be located outside the pressurized module and will contain Earth observation and materials science experiments. The logistics exposed section will serve as an on-orbit storage area for materials, tools and supplies. The elements are scheduled to launch to the International Space Station in 2009 on the third and final Kibo assembly mission.
